Southampton City Art Gallery

First opened in 1939 and housed in a beautiful and period, custom-designed building, Southampton City Art Gallery holds one of the finest collections of art in the south of England. Currently comprising 5,000 works and spanning 8 centuries, the collection is an outstanding educational resource that can trace the history of European art from the Renaissance to the present. The core, however, is British 20th century and contemporary art. Strong clusters of this element include Post-Impressionism (Camden Town Group), Surrealism, St Ives, and progressive contemporary (Turner Prize) from the mid-1970s. The gallery also hosts touring exhibitions, talks, seminars and workshops.
